Feudi di San Gregorio Patrimo Irpinia IGT 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Ein Ausnahmewein in jeder Hinsicht! Es beginnt mit der Farbe (tiefdunkel, brombeerfarben), setzt sich in der Nase fort und endet in einem vielschichtigen Sinneseindruck im Gaumen. Spätestens jetzt wird klar, dass es sich um einen Wein handelt, der zu den wenigen Weinen der Welt gehrt, die eine zusätzliche Dimension aufweisen: Tiefe. Welch ausserordentlich mutiger Entscheid, soweit im Süden Europas einen Spitzenwein mit Merlot zu keltern! Dieser Wein richtet sich in erster Linie an Freunde der Merlot-Traube, aber auch an LiebhaberInnen exquisiter Weine.

Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 1986. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Feudi di San Gregorio has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a virtual winemaking holding pattern. Feudi di San Gregorio has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varietals by placing a thoroughly modern spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Feudi di San Gregorio sources its grapes from the finest vineyards set in the rolling hills of the Irpinia region, located in close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano's legendary eruptions have laden the sandstone and marl soil with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash, forming a unique composition that imparts highly distinctive aromas and flavors in the grapes. Recognizing that a keen understanding of climatic conditions is indispensable to the successful cultivation of vines, Feudi di San Gregorio has invested extensively in state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Each of the estate's vineyards is equipped with a solar-powered meteorological station that gathers data continuously. By closely monitoring the environment, the estate is actively practicing eco-compatible viticulture, thereby reducing the need for artificial methods to an absolute minimum. Further embracing the benefits of technology, construction was recently completed on a modernized cellaring facility. A $20-million investment, it has the capacity to house an impressive 5,000 barrels. Read less

Crazy dark in the glass, close to black ruby red wine. The aromas of blackberries and dark fruit hit you pretty quickly, lots of smoke and mineral tones. A huge sensational wine on the palate, holds its fruit with some plum and blueberries from the start, the tannins are ingrained and not bothering me though distinctly there, the wine is hugely concentrated and needs several hours of decanting. Drinking far too young but still a stunning wine. 93 Points

This is impressive to taste. If you like monster Merlots, this is for you. A little bit more finesse would make it even better. Very ripe raisin and plum character that turns to prunes and licorice. Full-bodied, with silky, refined tannins and a long, delicious finish. A gorgeous wine. Best after 2006. 660 cases made. -JS ** Only 23 in Stock **
